This changes everything
Natalie Imbruglia's Torn is, undoubtedly, the soundtrack to our lives. It's seen us through many a school disco, awkward family barbecue and break-up. Christ, it even had us giggling at the back of the classroom whenever that 'lying naked on the floor' line got brought up. So naughty.
So you can imagine how SHOOK we were to discover Torn's actually a COVER; with the original released four years earlier in 1993 by Danish singer Lis Sørensen.
This. Changes. Everything.
Twitter user @VilinskiKonjic took to the social media platform to remind (or educate) us all that Natalie's smash is actually a cover of a cover; and '90s kids can't quite get over it.
So here's the deal. Back in 1993 LA alt-rock band Ednaswap wrote the track which was then released by Danish singer Lis Sørensen. The song was translated to Brændt; Danish for 'burnt.'
